Gluten Free Honey Semifreddo Recipe

Honey Semifreddo Recipe


If you have never had the pleasure of eating semifreddo, may I please be the one to introduce you to this Honey Semifreddo Recipe?

Semifreddo literally means half cold in Italian and is one of my very favorite summer desserts. It is a light, creamy, sliceable, frozen dessert that never gets rock hard like ice cream can. If you are one of those people that nukes your ice cream for a few seconds before eating it – you must give this dessert a try.

And here’s another really great thing about it – it is simple to make but can seem like its oh-so fancy. So you get all sorts of kudos when you serve it to your family and friends.

Usually semifreddo has a high sugar content which is what keeps it from freezing rock hard. This recipe uses Wholesome! Organic Honey in place of sugar which adds a whole new level of lusciousness! And because everything creamy is a little better with a bit of crunch, it is topped off with a sprinkle of toasted almonds.

Give it a try – you are going to totally love it! (As opposed to semi loving it!)
